Formerly Celestial Earth Sanctuary in Auburn, Alabama, Nine Worlds is an open American heathen kindred and community oraganized by har-gy øia, Ehsha Apple. Our practice is based in heathen ethics and aesthetics but our membership is eclectic: members from all paths are always welcome. As an American kindred, we welcome members of all backgrounds; we have a zero tolerance for non-tolerance policy and are LGBTIQ safe.
While we welcome kin from every path, Nine Worlds Kindred honors the folkways of bl ýt and sumbl, held according the Heathen Wheel of the Year. We place a high value on folk- building and outreach to the community. Heathen (H | øen in Old English) literally meaning people of the heath, once referred to rustic people who do not recognize Judaism, Christianity or Islam. "Hof" translates as "rustic temple" and the "Harrow" is the Heathen altar. The purpose of this grove is not to exclude others based on their tradition, heritage, orientation, or any way of being. Rather, we strive to provide a culture for those who want to be involved in Pagan spirituality on a more organized level. We provide various social events, learning opportunities, and a full ritual schedule. We also conduct classes and other activities such as oracular sei ør with the new group, Ulfvolk. Above all, we honor the land and its spirits, our kindred community, and our ancestors. We offer marriage ceremonies and handfasting as well. If you live in the Auburn area, please contact us at OPSTemplumGnostica@yahoo.com.
Membership information is available by emailing OPSTemplumGnostica@yahoo.com or by returning the forms in our Document Center on our Web page.
We are revamping our media outlets such as our flyers, web pages, and Facebook presence. Look for alterations soon.
All of our events include a ritual and a potluck feast. Everyone is welcome! If you are interested in any of our programs, ministries, or events, contact OPSTemplumGnostica@yahoo.com for a full schedule or for more information.
